A bit about the chef:

Food columnist, Linda Wyner, brings her encyclopedic knowledge of “foodie life” to the enterprise of Pans on Fire.  Linda's retail kitchen store and cooking school rivals RP's Culinary Center and is one of the most well respected avocational schools in the US.  Linda is a food anthropologist by education and author of Food for Thought: Musings on the History and Trivia of Food, which was published in 2006.

Bitten by the cooking bug at an early age, she drives out of her way to see a kitchen store, visit a farm or artisanal food producer, and talk about traditional foods and recipes with folks having different regional or international roots.

Having taken a host of classes through the California Culinary Academy and other private cooking schools, Linda has conducted cooking demonstrations and hands-on programs for a variety of audiences for many years. She’s passionate about sharing this knowledge with customers and inspiring adults and kids alike to pick up a spoon (or even a can opener) and get cooking.

CHEF'S BIO

Sharon moved to San Francisco for three years because she wanted to be a great cook and baker.  She finished her culinary training at a local home chef cooking school but went on to take professional classes at Tante Marie’s Cooking School.  It was both a culinary school and a pastry school and where she took numerous classes in both, but specialized her training in the pastry end. 

She then returned to Pittsburgh where she started teaching full time as a Chef Educator at Bidwell Training Center’s Culinary School.  She was the lead educator demonstrating in a large class instruction setting.  Her team also cooked lunch for the 500+ students at the facility.

Sharon has taught at The Versatile Gourmet and ended up designing and supervising their adult education program.  She  continued teaching in her home and still does so when she returns to Pittsburgh.

Though she can teach anything in the culinary realm, her love is baking. Hopefully you will sign up to experience her teaching techniques and improve your skills.

How should we celebrate the start of the 2018 Olympics?  With a Korean BBQ of course!

Then Korean BBQ......what is it.....ribs marinated in a traditional soy, sesame, and fruit juice marinade and then grilled to perfection. Korean BBQ is eaten as lettuce wraps.....a crisp lettuce leaf topped with a dollop of sauce, a morsel of meat, and any of the side dishes you desire. Fold your lettuce leaf wrap up to a bite sized packet and eat. Repeat until groaning and unable to eat more.

In addition, we will the delicious Korean soup that is served at virtually every BBQ meat restaurant in South Korea.

Finally, we will end our meal with a dessert of a layered cheesecake terrine with passion fruit.

Throughout the evening we will talk about the traditions, customs, and ingredients associated with Korean meals as they have evolved from the Joseon Dynasty thru the Japanese occupation of the Korean Peninsula to post-war modern Korea.

Bring your questions and an empty stomach.

TODAY'S CLASS:

It’s a Biscuit World and many claim to have the monopoly on tenderness!  Its hard to narrow down the many kinds of great biscuits out there, one more delicious than the next.  The star of our show is the White Lily Biscuit served with Country Ham!  You won’t want to miss the Red Lobster Biscuit Clone, it has everyone raving,  the Strawberry Biscuits, yes the Strawberries are IN THE BISCUIT, and you can’t live in the South without mastering the Real Southern Biscuits and Sausage Gravy!    

BISCUIT BASIC: If you twist your cutter when cutting out your biscuits, you will pinch the dough which will inhibit the rise of the biscuit.  

HERE’S WHAT TO DO: Flour your cutter.  Press down using equal pressure on both sides of your cutter.  DO NOT TWIST.

NOTE: There are many biscuit recipes which call for various fats such as lard, Crisco, high ratio shortening, as well as butter.  I’ selected those that give easy consistent results.

Bibimbap is one of the most beloved dishes in Korea and will have been served everyday day to the athletes in the Olympic village and to countless Olympic visitors.

We will be topping ours with a delicious beef bulgoki (불고기). For many of us, the perfect bibimbap is dressed with a sauce and a fried egg. We will serve the sauce on the side so that everyone can customize their bowl to the ideal degree of spice....not-spicy to fire-hot.

We will also learn to make a Korean green salad and a variety of the side dishes called banchan (반찬) that are an essential part of every Korean meal.

We will end our meal with a creamy panna cotta flavored with a Korean citron compote.

TODAY'S CLASS:

As a teenager, I became familiar with baking outcomes and realized that I liked two things about brownies, their chew, and their shiny crust!  Interesting that today it is that shiny crust that is sought by almost everyone and there are so many points of view about what you need to do to achieve it. 

Alice Medrich was my mentor and my hero, and crowned the chocolate guru of the world so that’s good enough for me!  Alice says that there are two “tricks” that affect the gloss and crackle of the top surface of a brownie.


The first is that letting the chocolate and butter mixture get hot when you melt it (about 150 degrees) and continuing the recipe without cooling it.  Sugar and cold eggs are added immediately, followed by vigorous beating of the batter with a  wooden spoon.
The second is that refrigerating the brownie batter in the pan for several hours, or as long as two days before baking, greatly improves the glossy surface as well.  Another example of science reinventing how we bake today!

I will demonstrate an Andes Mint Brownie covered with both mint and chocolate frosting as well as an extraordinary Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie.  Both are celebration worthy!

The class will be divided into three groups baking three different brownie recipes which will render different textures:  The Souffle Brownie, The Cocoa Brownie, and the Classic  Brownie,

Join us for a wonderful evening of learning, eating, and conversation with one of Rolling Pin's most beloved guest chefs...Virginia Willis!  




As the daughter and granddaughter of consummate Southern cooks and a classically trained French chef, Virginia has a gift for giving French recipes a down-home Southern feel. Her acclaimed first book,  Bon Appetite, Y’all , is a passionate homage to her culinary roots. In her demonstration of the recipes from her new book,  Lighten Up, Y’all , Virginia will show you how to take a tasty basic recipe and transform it, via a technique, garnish, additional step, or short recipe, into a show stopper - without the guilt!

Georgia-born French-trained Chef Virginia Willis has cooked Lapin Normandie with Julia Child in France, prepared lunch for President Clinton, catered a bowling party for Jane Fonda, and harvested capers in the shadow of a smoldering volcano in Sicily -- but it all started in her grandmother’s country kitchen.

Her eponymous food blog receives rave reviews for her recipes and stories celebrating her unique culinary niche.

She is a contributing editor for Southern Living and her articles have appeared nationally including Food52 and CNN.com as well as Country Living, Fine Cooking, All-Recipes, and Eating Well. As a nationally recognized Southern food and beverage expert she has been featured in the Washington Post and USA Today as well as quoted in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

She is the former TV kitchen director for Martha Stewart Living, Bobby Flay, and Nathalie Dupree. Virginia has appeared on Food Network's Chopped, Fox Family and Friends, Martha Stewart Living, Paula Deen's Best Dishes, and as a judge on Throwdown with Bobby Flay.
